The Semi-Type Challenge
Hosted by Alternative

This is the semi-type challenge, not to be confused with the mono-type challenge. Although they may be similar, they have their vast differences. Now for me to introduce the newest challenge on the block with the rules!


OHMAHGAWD RULES!!!1!
- Your Pokemon must be within the limits of the challenge guidelines, explained after the rules.
- Legendaries are allowed, but don't go over the top by making every Pokemon in your team a legendary.
- No trading will be allowed, except for the purpose of trading to evolve one's Pokemon.
- If your Pokemon gains a type from evolving, you may use that type for your next Pokemon.
- Also, if your Pokemon loses a type from evolving (Skorupi losing it's Bug-type when evolving) you cannot use a Pokemon from that lost type, unless you choose not to evolve it.
- To avoid monotyping this, you may not have more than three (3) Pokemon of the same type.
- No hacking or cheating is allowed. I don't see why you'd need to.
- Emulators are allowed. I'm using one, so yeah. :P
- Have fun with this. What's the point if no fun is gained from it?


OHMAHGAWD IM STILL LAWST
Here's how the challenge works. You choose the Pokemon you want to start off with, and you go from there with it's typing to choose your next Pokemon! Still confused? Let me show you how it's done.

You start off with a Mudkip, which will eventually evolve into a Swampert, being a Water/Ground type. Your next Pokemon should be either a Water or a Ground type. Next, you decide to catch a Wingull, a Water/Flying type Pokemon. This means that now your next Pokemon can be either a Water type or Flying type. To make this harder on everyone, since Wingull came from the Water attribute of Swampert, you have to use the second type for your third Pokemon, so in this example, I can use say a Taillow, using Wingull's Flying attribute.

Still doesn't make sense, don't be afraid to ask questions in the thread.
Now let's get to the participants! If you wish to partake in this challenge, post with your username and game you will be playing with.


OHMAHGAWD YOU IN OR YOU OUT?
Alternative // Emerald // 1
Porygon Z // Emerald // 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.

If you wish to keep track with either someone else's progress or even your own if you forgot where you were up to, I can keep track of your progress by linking every update of yours here next to your name.

Good luck to all you challengers out there. :D

    If we for instance, have a Swampert, Pelliper, and Swellow, and think "hmm, I believe this team is almost good enough, I just really want a Slaking" are we allowed to catch the Slaking, which would basically end our Pokemon selection, being a single type? Or would we be allowed to catch a Slaking and then a Girafarig or something?

    So, correct me if I'm wrong, say I start off with Torchic (Fire/Fighting, Blaziken) I could catch a Shroomish (Grass/Fighting, Breloom) then I could catch a Seedot (Grass/Dark, Shiftry) which would let me catch a Mightyena, if I wanted a team of four that is.
    If I wanted a team of say five, or six would I be able to work off Mightyena giving that it's type is only Normal?

    Blaziken
    Breloom
    Shiftry
    Mightyena

    To cover both of your questions, there's no rule against having Pokemon with a single type, but you just have to use that type again to choose another Pokemon. So if you chose a Slaking from Taillow, your next Pokemon would have to be a Normal type, or at least part of it.

      I don't think so, it's under Misc: so I assume it's any gen really.
